QNX and Simulink-Based Control Platform for HIT/DLR II Robot Hand


Article Preview

This paper presented a control platform for HIT/DLR II robot hand, which is based on QNX real-time operating system and Simulink software. The platform accelerates the development of robot hand control algorithm and hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) testing using Model-Based Design techniques of MATLAB Simulink. This paper also validated the performance of the platform by using two applications: single-finger position control and grasp application.
